  1. Words simply cannot express what you’re family means to us and my heart aches for you and the girls. We will be by your side and here for whatever you need. Heather was an amazing mother, wife and best friend. She truly made everyone a better person and touched so many lives. We love you guys!

  2. Heather was there for me when my youngest was having a hard time with with a neurological diagnosis. She reached out and asked if she could help. She and I never met in person, just through mutual friends having grown up in the same area together and then raising our families in Lake County; we connected personally on Facebook. I remember when Heather first shared about her diagnosis. I hoped to be there for her as she was there for me earlier. We agreed to get a glass of wine when all treatments were through; it would have been our first time meeting in person. I was in awe of her courage and strength through the testing, surgeries, and other medical procedures. She approached her mountain with grace, always finding lightness in darkness. I know Heaven shines all the brighter with Heather in present company. Her absence is heavy and I pray for peace and comfort to all those closest to Heather.

  3. My heart is so broken. Heather was such a wonderful human! She always knew how to look on the bright side of every situation, and despite everything that was thrown at her, she still reached out to her friends with love and compassion.

  4. Heather was an amazing niece and cousin to us. Her bravery and optimism in the face of her diagnosis inspired us. Sometimes she comforted us more than we comforted her. She was a gift to our lives and will never be forgotten. The memory of her smile and laughter will help lift us from our grief. We are shattered and heartbroken for AJ, Tom and the girls. We will stand together as a family to get through this difficult time. Heather’s love will guide us through this pain.

  5. Heather you friended me the minute I moved to the area and wanted to go to the lindenhurst Jazzercise with me! You are so friendly in a world where people are not! Speaks volume of your character! I just wished we followed through on getting together! ❤️❤️ I am still in the area and will be here for your family if they ever need anything. You are loved by so many and this is going to be a hard one for so many. ❤️❤️❤️

  6. Heather,
    You really are a great role model for the world how to face challenges with grace and strength. You will be missed by so many.

  7. I had known her as a fellow commuter for years. Later found she was a niece of HS friend Peter Zeddies. Sad to hear. Taken too soon.
